The BSU Observatory hosts public and private viewing events, runs K-12 workshops, and provides academic resources for student research, astronomy courses, and service-learning.
Until further notice, all observatory events are cancelled due to the campus-wide EEE nighttime event ban. We have removed our schedule from this website to avoid any confusion and will re-post a modified schedule of public events once the ban is over. We do not know how long the nighttime event ban will last, but Massachusetts updates the current risk level daily.
The Observatory hosts an active outreach program that welcomes members of the community. We host up to four events per week at night
The BEAR Team, funded by the NASA MASGC (Massachusetts Space Grant Consortium), is a group of students dedicated to observational astronomy research.
